Central Fabrication

Our goal is to provide affordable, cost-effective accreditation programs for central fabrication facilities. As a nonprofit organization, we strive to keep our costs reasonable and operate as efficiently as possible. This allows us to keep application and renewal fees low, especially when compared with other accrediting organizations.

Application Fees

  • Application Fee (non-refundable):         ​$150
  • Onsite Survey Fee:                                    $950

Annual Fees​​​

Once your facility is accredited, there is an annual fee for each location. The annual fee for a Central Fabrication Accredited Facility is $300. We email and mail invoices for your annual fee along with a Contact Verification form in mid-September and they are due December 1st. If your payment is not received by December 1st, we will no longer list your facility in the ABC directory and you will be subject to a $25 late fee.

Renewing Applicants

Your accreditation is valid for up to five years. Prior to your expiration, you will need to reapply and be resurveyed. The renewal fee is based on the current services you provide and includes both the application and onsite survey fees.
